HC Deb 18 July 1956 vol 556 cc96-7W
82. Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Postmaster-General what Civil Service classifications and salaries he proposes to apply to the staffs engaged upon the organisation and sale of Premium Bonds.

Dr. Hill

In the main, the Post Office will employ members of the general service executive and clerical grades in the central office, and members of the Post Office manipulative grades at Crown Post Offices. Pay will be at the rates prevailing for the several grades concerned.

83. Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Postmaster-General if he will break down in terms of offices, equipment, salaries, advertising, etc., the £1 million provided in the Post Office Supplementary Estimate for Premium Bonds.

Dr. Hill

The right hon. Member is under a misapprehension. The amount included in the Supplementary Estimate in respect of Premium Savings Bonds is in fact £225,000, and this relates solely to the estimated cost this year of the headquarters staff at Lytham St. Annes.
